Air Force Key Con(nections) Camp and Youth of the Year Recognition
Groups from 50 installations totaling 230 teenagers attended the first-ever Air Force-wide Keystone Teen Leadership Club camp held in San Antonio, TX on 15-19 Jul 13. Keystone is a teen leadership club from the Boys and Girls Clubs of America adopted by Air Force Youth Programs as a core teen program.
The purpose of this camp was to strengthen each local Keystone Club and inspire them to complete all the requirements to attend the National Keystone program held every spring. These teens had the opportunity to attend sessions of their choice on various aspects of leadership, community support, and personal skills development in addition to offsite trips to local universities, companies, and a homeless shelter for a day of service. The week was documented from the teens' perspective through social media with the hashtag #AFKEYCON which allowed friends, family, and future Keystone members to witness all that happened.
An important component of KeyCon Camp was the Youth of the Year Recognition program presided over by Major General Stewart, AFPC Commander. Forty teenagers from around the Air Force who had won their installation level competition were recognized for their accomplishments.
